Have you ever gone to your kids doctor appointment and came away frustrated or uncertain how you can help your child feel better. You have this inner voice telling you that there must be something that you can do and that medication is not always the answer to every situation. I have been there several times like you. My son had suffered with reflux when he was born which caused him to spit up A LOT and cried for many many hours. I frequently visited his pediatrician looking for answers and solutions to help my baby. Nothing worked. I was finally referred to see the head gastrointestinal doctor at a very precidious hospital near my home. I was so excited that I would finally have some answers and my little boy can finally have some relief. I discussed with the doctor the possibility of a connection to food, allergies and his immune system. To my utter disappointment I was told that his symptoms will eventually go away and that I should go home and REST! What! I thought I was hearing him wrong. I was so upset but needed to muster up all the energy I had left to find a solution. No one especially a child should have to suffer this way. Through studying and reading every book, article and attending every talk I could find that I could attend I put into practice that infact YES food was the answer and that there was a connection to the gut. Having the knowledge of what foods were causing an inflammation response through allergy testing I was able to remove such foods and work on restoring gut health and begin rebalancing his health. We have been on the road to recovery ever since.
My hope is that one day all clinicians will look outside the box of conventional medicine and listen to the words of Thomas Edison: “The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but rather will cure and prevent disease with Nutrition.”
